Here you get two Chondrodite crystals with good luster and undamaged shape together with a intact spinel crystal in matrix. I still see these specimens sometimes sold as Norbergite, this is not Norbergite!! The bigger crystal has at one side a tiny crystalline fracture area, there is also another two crystals but only partly terminated. Furthermore they are smaller spinel and chondrodite crystals deeper imbedded in the translucent calcite.
